For crack, great justice, howshesmiles and gojyo_saaama

Hey there, have a bar.

...it's possibly Kougyoku's bar, but this guest didn't really give a damn what it was named or who was running it. It had drinks and smokes, some resemblance of peace and a new, unwrinkled paper just waiting to be read. All the things any Sanzo needed to relax and unwind.

Even Sanzo's with double-X chromosomes.

This surly blonde hiding behind a cloud of cigarette smoke is slightly less tall than her male counterparts, and the hand that turns the page in her paper is slimmer and more feminine. She keeps her golden hair chopped short around her head except for a long, messy braid at the back, blowing away a stray strand when it annoys her.

Most of her form is hidden under her robes, but her black sash is tied higher, showing an obvious waist and fuller hips.(Though she must also be a picky eater, in need of a sandwich or two.) The sutra lies comfortable around her shoulders, curving slightly over a modest chest covered by the rakketsu... in which she keeps risking to lose her cigarette ashes.

Tipping it off in the ashtray instead, she turns the page once more, correcting her glasses.

Hakkai had also come to the bar for relaxation, although she chose to indulge in it a bit differently than her surly companion. She was not the type to smoke. Hakkai was not the type of person to give in to addiction or exhibit vice on a regular basis, but every now and then she allowed herself to indulge in alcohol.

...and even if she put down ten or twelve drinks in one night, it was nobody's business. She could hold her liquor better than anyone else she'd ever met. Hakkai truly enjoyed the rare occasions on which her services as a designated driver were not needed. She smiled at the bartender and ordered what must have been her sixth drink in a row.

Since Sanzo was so wrapped up in her reading it was up to Hakkai to start the conversation, as usual. "Even while you're trying to relax, you look bored."

She looked over the rim of her glasses when she heard the brunette, putting down her paper. "Tch. Do I have to look entertained for your amusement? I'm fine." Sanzo spoke easily around her cigarette, her lips a bit pink from the three glasses whiskey she'd had.

The blonde didn't pick up her paper again, though. Instead she watched Hakkai order another drink and held up her own empty glass, demanding some more as well.

"How's the dragon?"

Hakkai didn't bother to answer the first question. She'd love to see someone try to tell Sanzo to look entertained for them. It would probably earn them a bullet in the face.

Still, Hakkai couldn't help but notice how pink Sanzo's lips were after those drinks.

"Oh, I'm sure she'll be fine. Jeep's had a long day's work, but if she rests well tonight she'll be ready to go in the morning."

Jeep was a wonderful creature. Always so caring and dependable. Why couldn't the rest of the party be like that?

"Good. Goku's already off. She'll be gone for a whole goddamn year." Sanzo does not really approve of this, but since the monkey wanted to see the world on the other side of the sea now that they finally had returned to Chang'an... well, it would lessen the amount of food bills.

It didn't mean she wouldn't be feeling weirdly alone, though.

Picking up her newly-served drink, she glares at the ice in it. Goddamn bartender, watering the booze down.

Crossing her legs and shrugging out of the top of her robes, Sanzo lessens the risk of burning her rakketsu with cigarette ash. Even though they weren't fighting (as much) any more, she still kept her chest heavily bound under the leather shirt to be able to fire her gun easily.

Hakkai sighs. Everything about Sanzo is so tense and tightly wound: her emotions, her attitude, even her clothing. Someone really should help her unwind, it would be good for her.

This isn't the first time Hakkai has thought so, even though having impure thoughts about Sanzo nearly amounted to sacrilege. She might not have lead a completely virtuous life, but she was sexually untouchable. Hakkai wasn't sure if it was in spite of the forbidden nature of her attraction to Sanzo or because of it that she felt compelled to act.

However, she had to attend to the current conversation, along with Sanzo's hidden complaint. She was lonely. "You couldn't very well expect Goku to stay in one place forever. Don't all children want to run around and play?"

Unwinding is bad for you. In her stressed mind, it just made you weak. Even after their Journey, she couldn't let her guard down.

...well, at least she's mildly tipsy, allowing herself to relax just a little and enjoy her cigarette and drink with a slightly less adaption of metal-wire tension in her shoulders.

Sighing at Hakkai's words, she gives her an sour look, hiding her real emotions of losing her ward to the lust of exploring. Stupid monkey, getting so damn restless. It was a good thing she left before Sanzo shot her for being annoying.

"You'd think she'd had enough traveling for several lifetimes."

/oops, had to fix the pronouns!
"Our travels were a bit different than those of most travelers, don't you think?" Hakkai felt the need to point that out, even though it should be obvious. Sanzo may not have liked their journey much, but there was nothing wrong with Goku wanting to see more of the world.

"We didn't have the time to enjoy anything. I think it's good that she's curious about what she might've missed. Now that our journey is over and things are relatively peaceful, she's free to explore the world."

If anything, Sanzo could stand to learn a few things from Goku. At least Goku was interested in things she didn't know about. Sanzo could stand to do some exploring too... albeit in other areas.

hahaha yeah I have to do that too
Sanzo just glared back, her face slightly obscured behind her whiskey glass. Almost as if annoyed that they had gotten to the subject at all, she tosses back her drink and grits her teeth slightly at the sudden rush of alcohol.

"Nothing out there but idiots and schemes. Things didn't really go over well with the damn Minus Wave stopping. Youkai and humans... tch, they're both just as bad."

She sighs and tips off the ashes of her almost burned-out cigarette, brushing her braid off her shoulder. Stupid thing was starting to unravel again. Maybe she should cut it off... but it reminded her a bit of her master.

"You could also say that they're both just as good. Whether a person is good or bad, it doesn't depend on the way they were born."

Of course, this was nothing new to either of them. Hakkai was sure it was something they could both agree on. It might even be pleasant to have an ideological discussion... or at least, more pleasant then it was to talk about the missing monkey. It could allow Sanzo to take her mind off her loneliness for awhile, if she wanted.

The blonde shrugs a little at that, making a somewhat agreeing noise - but effectively killing the rest of the discussion. However, she agreed... no matter the genetic makeup of a person, there would always be idiots. Circumstances rather than species.

She should know.

Focusing her violet eyes on her glass, she briefly wondered why it couldn't just fill itself.

"This is a shitty bar." Sanzo mutters under her breath, a little bit flushed.

"Then, perhaps we should be going?"

It seemed as though Sanzo'd had a bit too much to drink anyway. It would be better to get her home before she did anything foolish, like starting a bar fight or passing out in public. ...okay, that probably wouldn't happen today, but Hakkai wasn't quite ready to admit to herself that she had ulterior motives for wanting to take Sanzo home.

She paid the tab and got out of her chair without further comment, waiting nearby to see if Sanzo needed help.

"Tch... fine." After several beers and the whiskey she'd had, Sanzo was well on her way to drunk - but thankfully not as bad as during a certain drinking contest. There was no risk of the nun unleashing Makai Tenjou on the other bar patrons, and she could actually stand on her own.

Putting a hand on her own hip, just below the area around her waist were her robes were collecting, Sanzo shot the brunette a slightly annoyed look. Damn Hakkai, did she have to pay the bill, too? It made her feel like they were on some stupid date.

"Were the hell are we staying?"

The metal-wire tension was back, and the situation didn't get any better when Sanzo wobbled slightly.

Hakkai was just taking care of things. She wasn't sure quite how drunk Sanzo was, so... it's better to make sure they have their tab covered at least.

"We're staying at an inn a few blocks down. It's not a long walk." ...though, Hakkai has serious doubts about whether Sanzo can make it or not after seeing her sway like that. On the other hand, Hakkai's not sure if she should offer to help. Sanzo would probably take it as an insult.
yangtzedaughter
Aug. 10th, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
Most likely, yes. She'd rather faceplant than ask for help... but she might semi-accept it with a grunt if offered. "It better not be. I've gotten enough shit under my boots just by sitting here."

That got her an insulted look from the bartender, but the bastard had been watering down her drink - so according to Sanzo, that was a mild insult compared to what he deserved.

"Let's go."

Door, door... yes, over there. Good.

"Sanzo, perhaps it's better if I..." Hakkai decided to leave the sentence unfinished in favor of walking up to Sanzo and locking arms. That way Sanzo could lean on her a bit without it looking too embarrassing.

Of course, Hakkai could always move that arm around Sanzo's waist, should she need additional support.
yangtzedaughter
Aug. 11th, 2011 12:13 am (UTC)
"Goddamn it, Hakkai..." Sanzo protests sourly, but she doesn't pull away or swat at the friendly support.

When they get out of the bar, she's even leaning slightly to the other woman, doing her best to look like she wasn't. Maybe she'd had a little bit too much - she usually didn't drink enough to leave herself this vulnerable, but with Goku leaving... it had felt like she needed to fill a gaping, strange hole.

Booze and cigarettes usually worked. But she still felt a bit off.

Hakkai swore that she hadn't meant to inch closer as they walked, but by the time they were at the inn they were side by side, close enough that their bodies rubbed together as they walked. Hakkai had her arm around Sanzo's back.

They were already checked in (Hakkai had done that early, of course), so all they had to do was get upstairs. That might prove to be a challenge. "There's a stairway up ahead. You might want to grab the rails."
yangtzedaughter
Aug. 11th, 2011 08:49 pm (UTC)
If Sanzo was disapproving of the eventual closeness, she didn't mention it. Instead she simply walked with Hakkai in silence, pleased to hear that they didn't have to go through the check-in procedure. (She could always trust Hakkai to take care of things.)

She was comfortably drunk in a way that made her want to lie down and relax, but she wasn't actually tired. Still a bit unsteady, though, so she took hold of the railing when they went up the stairs.

"They better have a nice bed..."
howshesmiles
Aug. 12th, 2011 03:41 am (UTC)
Hakkai smiles and helps Sanzo up the stairs. "From what I've heard, they have very nice beds." In fact, she was looking forward to sinking between the sheets. Hakkai told herself that she was interested only because she was looking forward to a good night's sleep, but it was a lie.

They made it up the stairs safely and Hakkai walked Sanzo into the room. She stayed by her side all the way to the bed.

Sanzo huffs as she walks into the room they were renting, glancing it over with slightly disapproving eyes. But finding nothing to bitch at, she sighs instead and sits down on the bed, loosening her black sash. "It looks good enough."

A few moments later, and she has managed to take off her robes completely, keeping her jeans and top on but kicking off her boots by the side of the bed. She fumbles a bit, but her thin fingers seem to still manage pulling off the gloves. One by one.

Pausing for a moment, she glares at Hakkai. "I'm not drunk enough to need a babysitter."
howshesmiles
Aug. 13th, 2011 05:27 pm (UTC)
"Of course not~"

Hakkai walks over to her bed and gets undressed as well. She's not the type to sleep in her clothes, so it's all coming off. She starts with the sash, folding it up neatly and tucking it into a drawer before unbuttoning her shirt.

"Did you want to take a shower, Sanzo?" Because if not, Hakkai's going to jump right in.
yangtzedaughter
Aug. 13th, 2011 09:58 pm (UTC)
She sighs and looks over at the bathroom door. A shower did sound nice, especially if it was better than the monastery one. Shrugging, she pulls off her black leather top and throws it to the rest of pile of clothing she was making.

Wearing only her jeans and the wrappings she had bound tightly around her bosom, the priestess makes her way over to the bathroom (swaying only a bit) and looks inside.

"...maybe."
howshesmiles
Aug. 14th, 2011 03:40 am (UTC)
"Be careful in there, it's slippery."

Hakkai's not so sure that's a good idea. In fact, she regrets having asked. If Sanzo slips and falls she could really hurt herself.

"...you will tell me if you need any help, won't you?"
yangtzedaughter
Aug. 14th, 2011 07:30 pm (UTC)
Sanzo huffs with annoyance, glaring at Hakkai before slamming the door shut behind her. "I don't need a damn babysitter!" She snarls in the other side, reaching to unwrap her bandages and promptly toppling over as she does. Cursing, the blonde feels ridiculous. She should have just dropped down on the bed and slept.

At least alcohol numbed the pain... but her ass was going to have bruises in the morning.

Continuing to unwrap herself on the safety of the bathroom floor, she also kicks off her jeans. Brushing off her ass, the nun mutters under her breath about drinking too much and carefully stands up again.

Unwrapped, her chest was moderate - a handful, so to say. Underneath those robes, she was pale, slim and carrying the signs of her hard life. Glancing over at the bathroom mirror, Sanzo frowned at the scars and loosened her lopsided braid as well.

There. Now shower.

...if she could get over there without cracking her skull open.

Hakkai stops in the middle of taking her pants off. She heard that crash.

"Sanzo, are you all right?"

She walks over to the bathroom door and knocks politely. Normally, Hakkai wouldn't bother knocking, but Sanzo may be undressed and she did just complain about not needing a babysitter. Caution is in order. She sighs. I knew this was a bad idea.
